Hey fellow podcast enthusiast!
My name is Ben Adkins and I'm excited that you've made your way to this page.
I am a professional podcaster and online entrepreneur and in the next 5 minutes, I want to walk you through how I retired from my traditional job back when I was 33 years old and went full time working from a backpack (and how podcasting helped make that possible).
First things first... I don't want to give off the impression that I was good at running my own business or making money from my podcast right out of the gate. That just isn't the case. I've been podcasting now for around 10 years and in that time I've made every single mistake in the book.
The truth of the matter is that when I first started podcasting, I had no direction or idea of how you turned these silly audio recordings into anything meaningful (let alone profitable). All I knew when I started was that I wanted to create one because they seemed fun and that I'd love to make a little money with it on the side if at all possible.
The first few years of podcasting, I made very little money and my podcast sounded like crap (it's the truth!).
But I stuck with it...
Why? Because it was something that I enjoyed and thought that one day I could maybe figure out exactly how to turn it into something that I did full time if I just kept plugging away.
I'd love to tell you that some accidental meeting with a podcasting guru led me to finally making that dream a reality (isn't that the standard story we're all so used to hearing?!?). The truth of the matter, however, was that I worked really hard at it and learned as much as I could from folks that I saw succeeding. I also had a lot of really kind people give me great advice along the way because they saw how hard I was working to get good at it.
After all of the years of being a "hungry student" and consuming every piece of content and piece of advice on how to run a successful podcast, it finally all clicked. I starting making great money with my podcast and have since gone on to help a ton of my friends and clients do the same.
Here's the thing I really want to stress... Running a wildly successful podcast has very little to do with what most people in the industry would have your believe. It's actually a much simpler formula than what I was aiming for at first.
Despite what you most people think a successful podcast must have...
Ok... but if that's the case... How do you make money with a Podcast when you don't have any of those things going for you?
Start with the audience and build the podcast for them instead of starting with the podcast and finding the audience after. That may seem simple enough in theory but 99.9% of people starting a podcast do this backwards.
Most people that start a podcast mess up right out of the gate and build the kind of thing that is impossible to make money from. The kinds of podcast that we build are strategically designed to make money (before we ever think about recording a second of audio)
You can't start a podcast about anything and expect to make money with it. You need to make sure that the money is there before you start.
So what kind of podcasts make money?
THE ANSWER: Micro Niche Podcast.
We're not talking about podcasts that are the top of the charts that have tons of listeners and can easily get sponsors. Most of them are done by people that already have a fan base (TV and Movie Celebrities or people that are part of a larger podcast network). We aren't even talking about using a podcasts as a way to grow an existing business because it allows you to connect with guest that are ideal customers (I've covered that in the past).
We're talking about highly niche podcasts that are built around talking about products that you can make money on.
...and that is creating a podcast that was built with a purpose from Day 1. That purpose being to make money and provide you with an income that you don't need to go to an office or traditional job to make.
The secret is to get the details right before you start recording.
